A look at old and new ways to use native plants in your garden and your meals. With all the talk of local food and saving water during the drought, why not turn to native plants to do both!? Rancho Santa Ana Botanic Garden Antonio Sanchez, leads this unique and informative talk on edible natives. This lecture covers many of the more common edible natives like Miner’s Lettuce (salad green) and Wild Grape (edible grapes), but also goes into some of the more obscure but equally as useful native plant foods like Saltbush (edible and tasty roasted seeds) and Cleveland Sage and local onions (combined to make a California pesto!). Samples of California pesto and other unique dishes will be available, along with recipe cards and a list of the easiest native edibles to grow in your garden.
